I thought I'd post a poll after reading numerous articles about oiling your barrel and still not having a solid answer.
Fell outa the Duck boat .... I know that wasn't fun brother , I've did that a cupola time in my life .... Wasn't shooting .... just lost my balance and went in the river running limb lines ... wasn't drunk", don't drink ... just step over junk in the boat ....Greeting's , New to the forum here ... But yes keep my firearms barrels oiled when I'm not using them.Outside of the barrel yes, inside, no. Clean my pistol barrels every 250-300 rounds or so and I shoot them often enough/rotate them through carry duty or night stand duty that I don't want oil inside the barrel.
I've never had an issue with rust on any of my firearms except my shotgun in the mag tube (mainly the spring) after I went swimming with it (fell out of my duck boat with it...)
